Biography


Judy, a native Georgian and a longtime resident of Savannah, began painting seriously after retirement as an educator.  Taking advantage of the best instruction locally and studying with several nationally known, workshop artists, watercolor became her medium of choice for many years.  Then, with the resurgence of the "painting en plein air movement," Judy discovered the thrill of "painting out" and added that to her studio experience.
 
Her subject matter includes flowers, usually from her garden, painted in watercolor as contemporary botanicals.  Portraiture, also in watercolor, is a subject she finds fascinating.  Painting her family from photographs has been excellent practice in developing the glazing technique she prefers.   However, it was exhibiting her first grand dog Blue Bell in "The Big Show," sponsored by Dick Blick Art, that she discovered the pure fun of painting one's beloved pet.  Expressing the narrative in each unique face, that of a person's or a pampered pet, is as good as it gets! 
 
Pet portraits are available in two sizes:  6" x 6" x  1.5" watercolor on prepared birch panel and 12" x 12" x 1.5"  acrylic on canvas.
